TD 418 - Haken (final results)

Post by Ironhorse » Sun Apr 07, 2019 11:16 pm

Welcome to TD 418. The questions are loosely based on one of my favorite bands, Haken. They are a progressive metal band similar to Dream Theater. Most of these questions are somehow based on song or album titles.

Rules:
1) Lowest point total wins; your score for each question is equal to the total number of players submitting that same answer
2) You may use one drop and take zero points for that question
3) You may elect to take the sheep answer for one question
4) Letters are required for questions 1, 6 and 7. If you forget, I'll try to PM you to give you a chance to correct it.
5) Wrong responses are the "sheep" answer +3
6) All answers are due by noon Central time on Tuesday, April 16, 2019
7) Don't cheat
8) Submit your answers here: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIp ... sp=sf_link

1. Atlas Stone

I am preparing for a cross-country move to North Carolina this summer, so this question is about some of the places that will be on the atlas of my new home. Identify one of the NC towns or cities described here. LETTER REQUIRED

A) Small town generally credited as the spot of the Wright Brothers’ first flight *
B) This locale’s tourist attractions include the NASCAR Hall of Fame and the Carowinds amusement park
C) Research Triangle suburb that shares a name with one of the most famous actors of the first half of the 20th century
D) College town with a music scene that gave birth to Ben Folds Five, Archers of Loaf, and the Squirrel Nut Zippers
E) Home of the NHL’s Hurricanes
F) City that shares a name with the most populous city in another state, but is actually the larger of the two cities
G) This town gave its name to a private Baptist college that moved to another entry on this list in 1956

I) Hometown of Andy Griffith, which bills itself as the “Modern Day Mayberry”
J) This hyphenated city is often called “Camel City” because of its historically dominant industry
K) Site of the famous 1960s sit-in at a Woolworth’s lunch counter

* - The modern town of Kill Devil Hills did not exist at the time, so I am not looking for that

2. Cockroach King

Give the common name of one of these insects. I have provided the order for each one.

Dermaptera - Possibly named due to an old wives’ tale that it would reach the brain by entering the body through a certain orifice
Lepidoptera - The only insect to lend its name to a swimming stroke
Orthoptera - According to the Bible, this plus honey constituted the diet of John the Baptist
Coleoptera - Beetle that devastated the economy of the South by feeding on cotton, though many credit it for forcing economic diversification there
Hymenoptera - Predatory wasp, and the mascot of an ACC school
Mantodea - Commonly named for its religious-seeming posture
Neuroptera - Predator that lays traps in which ants fall. Its larvae are often called doodlebugs in the South.

5. Falling Back to Earth

This song's lyrics are largely based on the tale of Icarus, so you'll need to name one of these figures from Greek mythology.

The ferryman on the river Styx
Builder of the Labyrinth and father of Icarus
Chief of the muses, and namesake of a modern musical instrument
Hero who boarded the Argo in search of the Golden Fleece
Daughter of Atlas who detained Odysseus for seven years

7. Vector

This album released last fall was something of a concept album, and the band has acknowledged a number of concepts from popular psychology that influenced the story. Name one of these psychology concepts based on a short excerpt from its Wikipedia entry. Most of these would be covered in an introductory course. LETTER REQUIRED

A. "a condition which causes hostages to develop a psychological alliance with their captors as a survival strategy during captivity"
B. "(name of answer)’s early experiments used manipulation of events or stimuli preceding behavior (i.e., a tone) to produce salivation in dogs"
C. "a behavioral condition in a relationship where one person enables another person's addiction, poor mental health... or underachievement"
D. "participants were led to believe that they were assisting an unrelated experiment, in which they had to administer electric shocks to a 'learner'."
E. "when the subject correctly performs the behavior, the chamber mechanism* delivers food or another reward"
F. "in the study, volunteers were randomly assigned to be either "guards" or "prisoners" in a mock prison"
G. (answer) can be contrasted with the foot-in-the-door (FITD) technique, in which a persuader begins with a small request and gradually increases the demands of each request. Both the FITD and (answer) increase the likelihood a respondent will agree to the second request"
H. "a factitious disorder wherein those affected feign disease, illness, or psychological trauma to draw attention, sympathy, or reassurance"
I. "a physiological reaction that occurs in response to a perceived harmful event, attack, or threat to survival. It was first described by Walter Bradford Cannon"
J. "a technique whereby exposure to one stimulus influences a response to a subsequent stimulus, without conscious guidance or intention. For example, the word NURSE is recognized more quickly following the word DOCTOR than following the word BREAD"
K. "...used the terms "physiological", "safety", "belonging and love", "social needs" or "esteem", and "self-actualization" to describe the pattern through which human motivations generally move"

I guess I missed this TD. I assumed I'd already entered. I wonder if SensiCay or Gamawire can backfill the bottom slot for me? Happy anti-sheeping to all, see you in TD419!

Burlington was my first guess on Q1, as I've been through there many times, but I chickened out of it because I wasn't sure if Burlington, NC was in fact bigger than Burlington, VT. I also thought of Wilmington, which I figured was correct but would get picked a lot.
